Deciphera Pharmaceuticals, LLC Key Developments

Deciphera Eyes Listing In 12-18 Months

Deciphera Pharmaceuticals, LLC may get listed in near future, reported Boston Business Journal on September 21, 2015. Mike Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of Deciphera Pharmaceuticals said, "We just want to go out from a position of strength," he added that "By the end of 2016 we’d be looking at transitioning toward a public company."

Deciphera Pharmaceuticals Announces the Publication of Study Results of its Phase 1 Anti-Cancer Product Candidate, Altiratinib, Abalanced, Spectrum-Selective Inhibitor of MET, TIE2, and VEGFR2 kinases

Deciphera Pharmaceuticals announced the publication of study results describing the preclinical profile of its Phase 1 anti-cancer product candidate, altiratinib, abalanced, spectrum-selective inhibitor of MET, TIE2, and VEGFR2 kinases. Altiratinib is currently in Phase 1 clinical evaluation in cancer patients (NCT02228811). In the article the authors describe how altiratinib’s balanced inhibition of the three key kinases, MET, TIE2, and VEGFR2 was achieved using Deciphera’s proprietary switch control kinase inhibitor platform. Moreover, altiratinib was shown to inhibit not only wild type MET, but also oncogenic mutant forms of MET not readily inhibited by other MET inhibitors in development. The ability to inhibit MET mutants during the course of treatment is a key component to altiratinib’s product profile, which Deciphera believes will provide more durable therapy for cancer patients compared to existing agents. MET mutations are driver mutations in certain cancers and can also arise as a resistance mechanism in patients with pre-existing MET amplifications, highlighting the need for durable inhibition of various forms of genomically altered MET. The report further discloses altiratinib’s ability to block drug resistance mechanisms mediated by the tumor microenvironment. Through its balanced inhibitory potency, altiratinib was shown to inhibit three major evasive cancer (re)vascularization and resistance pathways with comparable single-digit nanomolar inhibitory potency, including HGF, ANG, and VEGF and to block tumor invasion and metastasis. Notably, in a glioblastoma tumor model known to exhibit these tumor microenvironment disease progression mechanisms, altiratinib was shown to double the overall survival of mice compared to vehicle control treated mice and, in combination with bevacizumab, to double survival compared to single-agent bevacizumab-treated mice.

Jean-Yves Blay, MD is a medical oncologist, researcher, and professor. He currently holds the position of General Director of the Centre Léon Bérard, in Lyon, France, and additionally maintains active roles at this institution including Professor of Medical Oncology at the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, Head of the Integrated Research Site of Lyon (LYric) of the French National Cancer Institute, Director of the Network of Reference Centers for Sarcomas in France, Chairman of the French Sarcoma Group, and Director of the Institute for Clinical Science. F. Stephen Hodi, MD is the Director of the Melanoma Center and the Center for Immuno-Oncology at Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center and Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Filip Janku, MD, PhD is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Investigational Cancer Therapeutics (Phase I Program) at MD Anderson Cancer Center.
